Henrik Ibsen's HEDDA GABLER
By Henrik Ibsen
Adapted by John Robin Baitz
Directed and Designed by Glenn Gauer
Costume Design by Sandra Zodnik
To what lengths will a person go to avoid scandal? How desperate do peope need to become before they take matters into their own hands?
After a lavish six month honeymoon that she demanded of her academic husband Hedda is home to an oversized house, a life of mounting debt and herself... a fierce free spirit terrified of being trapped in a life of mediocrity. Hedda's veil of torment is momentarily lifted when Lovborg, the brilliant and irresistible philosopher comes back into her life. Ibsen masterfully explores the potential for despair that resides in human frailty.
Hedda Gabler barely survived the critic's reviews, when it premiered in 1891, but went on to become a standard in the twentieth century. Each generation's most important actresses have found in Hedda one of the most intriguing and challenging female roles of the stage and screen. They helped earn the play the eminence it now enjoys as one of Ibsen's most magnificent creations.
